Built by TQC Sheen, our paint testing specialist brand, this highly accurate shore durometer hardness tester is ideal for coating laboratories and paint production.

It’s exactly what you need for testing materials including polyester, ABS, nylon, polyurethane, kevlar, acryl, wood and polystyrene.

Shore durometers measure the depth of an indentation in the material created by a given force on a standardized presser foot. The depth is dependent on the hardness of the material, its viscoelastic properties, the shape of the presser foot and the duration of the test.

Our shore durometers are a reliably robust device that will measure the impression hardness of soft materials such as coatings, plastics and rubber, without shock.

Ours comes equipped with a drag indicator, which holds the highest measured result and a simple test block.

Reliable shore durometer testing – a sure thing!

When you need to meet the challenging requirements of international standards bodies, our shore durometer won’t let you down. It complies with many standards including DIN 53505 and ISO 868 and ASTMD2240.

Shore A or Shore D durometer?

The two durometers differ in the shape of the indenter and as a result they differ in the materials used for.


Examples of materials and durometer used:


The measurements are in units 0 to 100.

TQC Shore Durometer type A Hardness Gauge:

Ideal for materials such as elastomers, vinyl, rubber, leather, pvc, silicone-rubber, teflon, neopreen, etc.

TQC Shore Durometer type D Hardness Gauge:

Ideal for materials such as polyester, ABS, nylon, polyurethane, kevlar, acryl, wood, polystyrene etc.
